Big O Tires Ends Successful Holiday Canned Food Drive
The Big O Tires stores in Loveland, Fort Collins, and Greeley completed their very successful Holiday Canned Food Drive benefitting the Food Bank for Larimer County.
The exceptional customers of the Loveland Big O Tires nearly doubled donations from the previous year by collecting over 746 pounds of nonperishable food items for the Food Bank for Larimer County and collecting $700 in donations. With every dollar donated providing the shelter with $5 worth of buying power, the total monetary donation is valued at $3,500 in buying power for the Food Bank for Larimer County.
Customers of the Fort Collins Big O Tires stores notably donated over 268 pounds of food items to the Food Bank for Larimer County as well as $140 in donations. Since every dollar donated gives the shelter $5 in buying power, the total monetary donation is valued at $700 in buying power for the Food Bank for Larimer County.
Customers of the Greeley Big O Tires store notably donated over 100 pounds of food to the Weld Food Bank and $40 in donations. Since every dollar donated gives the shelter $5 in buying power, the total monetary donation is equal to $200 in buying power for the Weld Food Bank.
Lauren Ross Dewey, Development Manager for the Food Bank for Larimer Country said, “In the first 10 days of December alone, over 1,000 more people visited the Food Bank’s Food Pantry looking for help than last year at the same time. With the increased demand this year, we are grateful to Big O Tires and the local community in helping us to end hunger in Larimer County.”
Loveland Big O Tires owner Dana Foote and Fort Collins Big O Tires owner Jim Lautzenheiser are elated by the great support shown by the Northern Colorado communities for the local food banks this year. “Big O Tires is passionate about giving back to our communities all year round and we want to thank Loveland for your continued generosity this holiday season,” said Foote. “We want to thank all of our customers who showed their absolute support for those in need in our community this holiday season,” said Lautzenheiser.
